Several New Screenshots of Zelda for Super Smash Bros. Wii U/3DS

Colonel-MajoraJanuary 10th, 2014 by Colonel-Majora

Untitled Several more screenshots of Princess Zelda have been released for the new Super Smash Bros. This time around we get to see the new look of her magic, some more funny shots with other characters, and more.

Hit the jump to catch some of the most interesting new shots!

Some of these are rather intriguing, while other are just plain hilarious on Nintendo’s part.

 

Zelda is apparently massively under-powered, being bested by... this little guy.

We now get to see the size ratio between Zelda and Toon Link. MAN. That’s a big head.

 

smash_bros_zelda-11

Zelda realizes that Link has been lazing around like this for seven straight years…

 

smash_bros_zelda-10

…and punishes him.

SELFY WITH MY GIRLS!

The use of more varied expressions seems to be a bit more prominent in this game than in Brawl. Honestly, Zelda now looks a lot more… fierce, for lack of a better word, looking REALLY ticked off every time she attacks somebody. Also, where is our lovely Shiek in all of this? Not one picture has come up revealing Shiek, and this was a massive pile of pictures. Could she have been left out this time around?

You can view all of the new screenshots here.

Let us know your thoughts! Is it time we saw some pictures of Shiek? Will any of you be choosing Zelda as your primary fighter when this game comes out? let us know in the comments!

    I want zelda u to have those graphics.

    • GanonsBaker

      I’m sure Zelda U will have even better graphics, as its had a longer development time. but im assuming you mean you want zelda and link to look like they are from TP, which they will not.

      • Bobomb

        Its that a personal truth or have Nintendo revealed the graphic direction for Zelda U?

        • Bobomb

          *Is

          • GanonsBaker

            Early in 2013, Mr. Aonuma said the next console zelda game would have a unique art style, unlike any used so far. it was an ign article, though im pretty sure i saw it on miiverse too

      • matt schweiss

        Link looks a lot different then twilight princess link on the wii u version when it comes 2 his face, but in the 3ds version he looks exactly the same as twilight princess link

        • GanonsBaker

          In SSB yes, but not the actual new Wii U zelda

    • JuicieJ

      I think they’ll be more akin to the art style of Hyrule Warriors. Extremely detailed textures with vibrant colors.

  • Link’s Hat

    Selfy… really?

  • Redninjakoopa

    I am going to be really bummed if they leave Shiek out, Shiek has been my first or second best character (alongside Marth, at least I know he’s returning) since Melee. I mean, I’m still going to buy the game for both the Wii U and 3DS with or without Shiek, but it’d still be a bummer.

  • Julian Delarosa

    Well it might not be the official names, but from now on, i’m using them

    Super Smash Bros Universe (wiiu SSB4)
    and Super Smash Bros Dimensions (3ds SSB4)

    • http://www.controlpaddesign.com/ TheMaverickk

      Clever naming. I kind of think it would be cool if they gave this entry a true subtitle.

  • EnaZeibekiko

    I still wish they’d gone with the Skyward Sword Link and Zelda. These are not the current faces of the franchise.

    • http://www.controlpaddesign.com/ TheMaverickk

      I do agree with this sentiment. Most the time Smash Bros. has updated characters based on newer releases.

      For example Brawl was released not too long after Twilight Princess, so fittingly Link’s model was updated from OoT style to TP style. Same with Zelda.

      Mario got some new moves based on the F.L.U.D.D … although I wish they’d give Luigi some Luigi’s Mansion based moves.

      Kid Icarus got updated to match with Uprising even.

      So yeah seems like a missed opportunity to have some fun. Still they probably just wanted to play it safe and not alienate some passionate fans….

    • Emma Inglis

      I thought this too, but I surmise the logic behind it is that Twilight Princess’ incarnation of Zelda is more…’combat ready’…for want of a better phrase. She carries a sword, is a competent archer, and in terms of appearance, they nailed it. I consider her the most iconic looking out of all of them. Skyward Sword’s Zelda wasn’t entirely incapable, but being Hylia’s incarnation she just seemed too much of a pacifist, both in her Ceremony garb and in Hylia’s garb.

      • EnaZeibekiko

        I don’t doubt that was the logic, but it’s ironic if so because SS Zelda did more adventuring than her incarnation in Twilight Princess. In the realm of opinion, I agree with yours that TP Zelda is iconic, but I liked the character of SS Zelda more, and would prefer to see her fleshed out. A new move set would impress me, but even new animations to go with the old moves would be acceptable. About the only thing that I would find disappointing is if she were the same as she was in Brawl.

    • ePik Min

      By the time SSB4 will be released, SS Link and Zelda won’t be “the current faces” anymore.
      Zelda U might be released less than 1 year after SSB4. SS was released in 2011 (yes, it is that old ^^).

      • Mangachick14

        Um, and Twilight Princess came out in 2006. SS Link and Zelda are more the current faces than the Twilight Princess designs will ever be at this point.

        • ePik Min

          Except if they decide to use a similar art style for Zelda U. I’m not pretending it will happen, but it is a possibility.

          • Mangachick14

            It probably won’t be. If I’m not mistaken, Nintendo has said the Zelda WiiU is going to have an artstyle not yet seen in the series yet. It still makes more sense, if we want the current faces of the franchise, to use SS’s designs.

          • EnaZeibekiko

            Even if Zelda U has a “realistic,” high-fantasy style similar to Twilight Princess, Nintendo won’t use these models. Zelda and Link will have different facial features and altered clothing. These–very impressive–models are distinctly Twilight Princess.

    • CraptainFalcon

      *sigh* Freakin’ dumbass.

      • Mangachick14

        That person isn’t a dumbass for having a different opinion than you.

        • Guest

          Okay, CraptainFalcon.

          • Mangachick14

            Um, I’m not Craptain Falcon.

          • itsameluigi1290

            Yes you are.
            (loljk)

        • CraptainFalcon

          Uh huh.

          So, you’re talking to me again huh? I thought I was the uh “first and only” person on your Ignore list. So now that you can see this:
          1. I apologize for trolling you many months ago.
          2. I’m not a big fan of the renting system in ALBW, but it should return.
          And 3. I never noticed those scratch marks on the dead tree in Lake Hylia.

          So, yeah.

          • Mangachick14

            Unfortunately, the ignore list doesn’t work with disqus. It’s only in the forums. It’s a pity, because your bigotry annoys me.

          • CraptainFalcon

            Wow.

            Que mensa verdad? Bicha pasmada.

          • Mangachick14

            It’s not stupid, I was and still am sick of you and your bullshit. Bigots and trolls are two types of people I despise, and you happen to be both, so you better get used to your place on that ignore list. By the way, calling me a fagot in Portuguese makes you seem oh so mature and in the right.
            Criança ignorante.

          • CraptainFalcon

            Lol. It’s spanish. And I didn’t call you a faggot. Why would I call call a girl a faggot? That makes no sense whatsoever. You can hate me from a hobby I have long abandoned but you can not call me an ignorant child (THAT’S RIGHT! I KNOW SOME PORTUGUESE!)

            Mira sinceramente, perdoname MangaChick14. Si, Si se que nos hemos, como decirte, “peleado” por una cosita tan estupida. No te estoy haciendo burla oh nada. Solo te estoy ruegando por tu disculpa.

            -CraptainFalcon

            Yeah you can translate that. Oh and one more thing:

            Don’t…say swears.

          • Mangachick14

            Oh, you don’t like being called an ignorant child? Well, I don’t exactly appreciate being called a stupid bitch either. I have every right to be insulted and every right to retort. You say you’ve long ago ditched your trolling habits, but you still called two people dumbasses simply for having ideas contrary to your own just two days ago. That’s either trolling, or bigotry. It doesn’t really matter to me, because neither one will convince me to unblock you or whatever your goal is with this spontaneous Spanish apology.

            Here’s a little nugget of wisdom:

            If you’re going to apologize to someone, it’s probably best if you don’t insult them beforehand, in Spanish nor English. It’s not exactly going to make them more inclined to accept it.

          • CraptainFalcon

            Now let me explain something here. I start arguments with little comments like that. I do it cause I need to practice my debate skillls for next semester in school. And the reason why I’m apologizing in Spanish is because I also need to practice my writing in spanish.

            And yet again, I didn’t even call you a stupid bitch. I’m not that mean. I don’t know if you’re actually mad or beyond pissed at me, but honestly, dumbassery and arguing aside, let’s just put all our differences aside and forget this happened.

            I’m actually serious.He’s not a dumbass, I’m not an ignorant child, you’re not a “stupid bitch” or “faggot” or whatever else you think I called you. Now is this little incident over?

  • matt schweiss

    I dont think shiek will be left out. We havt seen any of zero suit samus either, but there is footage of her using her zero beam which is supposed 2 power down the varia suit soooo….. I think they are just letting us wonder on this one. Im probably going 2 get the wii u version if I dont get both versions

  • http://gamextc.us/ XTC

    The subtitle “selfie with my girls” kinda made me laugh more than it should have, Haha

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/MBlueFlame?feature=mhee markasscop

    i need some private time w/ these photos…

    • VladNorris

      Nasty

      • clickerpickerrobobot

        lol

    • CraptainFalcon

      Nice…

  • Jaiden Edmonds

    That asshole Dedede is back.

    • The Red Dragon

      Dedede is freaking amazing! He’s not an asshole! XD

  • http://www.controlpaddesign.com/ TheMaverickk

    Not going to lie… Zelda looks a bit bitchy in the new Super Smash Bros.

    Even slightly… gothy… like she doesn’t have a nice pale skin look going on. It’s not a huge deal though, but it’s unfortunate. Don’t know why most of her expressions come off as angry though.

    Not my fave character to play as though, so I’m not too broken up by it.

  • DarkHylianInterloper

    Them graphics are insane! I’m so hyped!

    • Hi3k

      I know right!

  • Zelda Fan

    I have to say that I’m really disappointed that they didn’t use Zelda from Skyward Sword. I’m not exactly sure what her powers would be, but it almost feels like the Zelda from Twilight Princess doesn’t fit in this game. Link is from Skyward Sword, and so is the stage setting. Plus, SS Zelda would probably look just as good, if not better, in these graphics as opposed to the Zelda from TP.

    • VladNorris

      Umm…Link is from Twilight Princess as well, The tunic, the gauntlet, everything is from Twilight Princess. They only used a brighter color palette.

      • Dark Deku Link

        lets hope they keep the tp look for the zelda u

        • http://zeldadungeon.net/ Deku_Ocarina

          people complain tp is too dark, but only MM and TP have been dark,
          and not even that much, i hope they switch from cartoon to dark every now and then.

          • http://www.controlpaddesign.com/ TheMaverickk

            MM wasn’t actually visually dark. There was a lot of variety in colour and tone. Contrast is a good word for it.

            Thematically I don’t consider the game dark either… it’s a mature game and deals a lot with the human emotions (more so then most “M” rated titles even)… but that doesn’t make it overall a dark game.

          • CraptainFalcon

            TP isn’t dark!

          • JSBailey

            someone on here said OOT and TP were darker than MM. MM is the darkest in my opinion. It wasn’t so much the lack of bright colors (like SS), but everyone around you is angry, in denial, frozen, believing they will be dead before they eat again, a moon crashing and some are oblivious. It was psychologically dark. I played it once, then tried twice and failed both times. (but partially because I hate missing something and having to play the Song of Time again to re-do it within a time limit)

    • JSBailey

      I don’t think Zelda from SS looks fierce enough. But on the other hand, Princess…..Toadstool? I don’t know Mario that well sorry, anyway, looks that tough either.

      • EnaZeibekiko

        It’s up to the animators to make her a fighter, and if you’re good enough to work at HAL, you must have enough imagination to show some of the adventuring spirit Zelda demonstrated in Skyward Sword. Let’s not forget it’s the one game where she’s actually one step ahead of Link for much of the time he’s trying to rescue her.

    • CraptainFalcon

      *sigh* Freakin’ dumbass.

    • MasterSword wielder

      I have to agree. Don’t get me wrong I love TP but that zelda was in brawl. Pluss SS zelda would look Great in hd.

  • Ethos777

    uhhh Twilight Princess Zelda <3

          Well you’re just a downer, aren’t you? First markasscop isn’t allowed private time with these photos because it’s “nasty”, and now I can’t reference attractiveness? I say NO to you, sir.

      • http://axlethebeast.com/ Axle the Beast

        Rosalina’s better than any version of Zelda. =I

        • Matthew Shannon

          not better than tetra, imho. Tetra is too badass

          • http://axlethebeast.com/ Axle the Beast

            Noooooooooooooooooooooooooo

        • MasterSword wielder

          I agree with you 100%. I just think it’s funny you do videos for ZD. (BTW love Curiosity Shop)

          • http://axlethebeast.com/ Axle the Beast

            I won’t deny it’s funny and ironic. Regardless, I like plenty of things that are not Zelda. My favorite video game soundtracks of all-time are not Zelda soundtracks, for example. And neither are my favorite fictional ladies. =P

          • MasterSword wielder

            I’m with you. TBH I liked the Mario Galaxys better than Zelda SS. As far as soundtracks go there are plenty to me that are just as good or better than zelda. My fav soundtrack is probably the original Luigi’s mansion or Mario Sunshine.

          • http://axlethebeast.com/ Axle the Beast

            I think I like SS better than Galaxy but that’s just my opinion on it. As far as soundtracks go, my favorite soundtrack is a tie between the first Metroid Prime and the entirety of the Mega Man Zero series, especially the remastered soundtracks.

          • A Link to the Comments

            You haven’t been doing much on ZD for a while now. What’s up with that?

          • http://axlethebeast.com/ Axle the Beast

            Real life hit pretty hard and I haven’t had the time to get through ALBW, keep up with news, or otherwise contribute to ZD. Should go back to normal pretty soon though.

    • Hi3k

      You never try Rosalina before
      So how could you say that Rosalina is better than Zelda
      Shame on you

      • http://axlethebeast.com/ Axle the Beast

        I’ve played Mario Galaxy, so uhhhh…?

  • DamagingLink

    What is Toon Link looking at?!

    • FenderGuitars777

      Something he just doesn’t get to see in his normal cartoon like graphics. Definitely looks surprised there.

    • http://zeldadungeon.net/ Deku_Ocarina

      Toon link: “Damn girl! Yo boobies are fiiiiine”

  • Essence Of The Triforce

    These graphics are amazing!

  • hollander

    ahahahahh the toon link and zelda soo different

  • http://zeldadungeon.net/ Deku_Ocarina

    thumbs up for zelda being bested by a pikmin!

  • Mangachick14

    She’s pretty but, damn… why does she look so mad? Like, who pissed in her cereal this morning?

  • Lulufunnnycat

    Zelda: “Awww Toon Link your adorable! Wait what are you looking at?”

  • nignacio

    I don’t see Sheik. But surely this doesn’t mean he (she?) is out of the game, right? RIGHT??!!

    • Areyouserious

      Did you just ask if Sheik was a boy? Ahahahahaha no.

  • TwiliTetra

    It WAS a purple Pikman… In the game, their really heavy. Red is flame resistant, blue is water proof, and purple has sumo power! XD

  • CraptainFalcon

    SHE’S SO FREAKIN’ PALE! HAS ANYONE ELSE NOTICED THAT?!

    • CrimsonLoftwing

      Well, she IS a princess. She probably doesn’t leave the castle much.

      • http://zeldadungeon.net/ Deku_Ocarina

        that and link has the same shade of skin

    • Finn the hero

      Holy crap, she is. :o

    • EnaZeibekiko

      I dislike how pale she is, and how serious :- Where’s my good friend and friendly goddess Skyward Sword Zelda?!

    • Hi3k

      She is just as pale as the other princess
      What is the big deal?

      • http://www.controlpaddesign.com/ TheMaverickk

        Her skin colour though compared to the others make it looks like she’s got a mild case of jaundice though.

        It doesn’t even match up with the skin colour from the actual character models which is a little lame.

    • OcarinaofWind12

      Well some people find that attractive so I guess it’s meant to add to the “gorgeous Princess” kinda thing.

  • Finn the hero

    Why didn’t they does this when there were screenshots of toon link back when ALBW came out.

    • Finn the hero

      Also, can someone please tell me how to download the dolphin emulator and if it is illegal or not. please.

      • DawnofaNewDay

        idk how but im pretty sure emulators are legal

      • Some Donkus

        No, emulators are illegal. Even if it’s for an old game not on the eShop, it is technically illegal. That hasn’t stopped people from using them, though, including me. I draw the line as NES-N64 games as ok to emulate and anything after the GBA as not, but technically all are illegal. Lots of people use the “second copy” rule or say that if it’s not being produced you can emulate it. Remember that it is illegal, and use at your own risk.

        • http://www.controlpaddesign.com/ TheMaverickk

          If you can’t obtain a game by legal means then I’d say it’s fair.

          Games that aren’t localized, games that are out of print and unavailable on eShop… to me that would be good reasons to emulate. Although if you can you should give money to the developers anyway you can.

        • Nadaph

          It would only be illegal if they are making a profit on the games. Otherwise it is fine. That’s what I am aware of.

      • Nadaph

        coolrom.com They have everything.

  • thejuniorinho

    Shiek is possibly not in the new game. I’m saying this because there was a screenshot showing Zelda use a darknut to fight someone (which was her different form in either Spirit Tracks or Phantom Hourglass right? I never played them but I know it was one of the…). So I was thanking that that second form would replace Shiek, but we just have to wait and see.

    • Linkachu72

      she turns into a phantom, not a darknut. and it’s in ST.

    • TheHylianPixels

      It could be an assist trophy

  • DawnofaNewDay

    a purple pikmin? i hope therell be stuff from pikmin 3

    • http://zeldadungeon.net/ Deku_Ocarina

      i hope they have all pikmin types, red, yellow, blue, rock, flying, purple, and poison.

      • DawnofaNewDay

        that would be neat, id also like to see the new characters in some way

  • Hi3k

    Can’t wait for new character to appear!

  • StationaryBomb

    Nice captions! Nice to always have something funny every day.

  • Linkachu72

    in that one with Toon Link, look at where his eyes are looking 0.0

    • I’mZeldaJustKiddingNoI’mNot

      damn that neck

  • Darmani

    I’m hoping the Final Smash for each character (if there is one) is different depending on the version you buy. For example, Link could use his Final Smash from Brawl (Triforce Slash) in the WiiU version, and for the 3DS version, he can transform into the Fierce Deity / Oni Link temporarily (MM in 3D! Yay!), I at least want there to be some references to MM, and maybe even a stage on either version.

    • http://zeldadungeon.net/ Deku_Ocarina

      MM is 3D, i didn’t get why they called the OOT remake “OOT3d”
      is it just because it’s on the 3ds?

      albw is altlp3d but OOT3d is OOT with better graphics.

      • Nadaph

        It was the use of 3D visuals, and not like a 3D environment, the depth switch. And Wind Waker HD has the HD in it for the HD graphics update.

  • Nadaph

    Zelda’s model and textures seem to be improving. I noticed that in the earlier screenshots her shoulder plates appeared to be riged

  • Ganon’s Afro

    I never noticed how the line between Zelda’s boobs is always blocked by her necklace thing.

    • FenderGuitars777

      That’s because she’s a classy lady

  • Jaiden Edmonds

    Toon Link looks really good.

  • Super Smash Sis

    Why won’t you post these in the site’s gallery?!?!?1? You always used to do that! What’s wrong with you people?!?

  • itsameluigi1290

    Dem graphics.

  • Amber Evans

    I wish the graphics could be just a little bit better. Smooth out those facets!!!! That would make it just so much better!!!!!!
    Also, that Link couldn’t have been sleeping for 7 years! That is the Twilight Princess Link – look at that shield. Not Oot.

    • CraptainFalcon

      HOW CAN YOU SAY THAT!? THE GRAPHICS ARE AMAZING!

      • Amber Evans

        They are pretty good for game graphics, but as an VSFX artist, my standard for graphics are a lot higher.

        • CraptainFalcon

          Oh.

    • Jack Sabol

      it could be skyward sword link and it could be Oot link because he wakes up as an adult. zelda could find him near the end of the 7 years

      • Amber Evans

        Yes, but the Oot shield doesn’t have the metal work around the triforce.

  • LittleGreen

    I was hoping for SS Zelda…

    • NiteHood

      Yeah, she would have been way better! Her sheik model might have looked kind of strange in Skywards Swords art stile though…

  • Chibi

    Aww Peach and Rosalina are so cute! *-*

  • Ninty

    She still looks so sickly in complexion to me. Not overly mind you, but that’s the kinda of pale color I’d give to a villain. She might be the TP Zelda but she should at least look kind of right with everyone else in her color scheme.

  • Jack Sabol

    omg yes skyloft map

    • LittleGreen

      It’s not that new actually it was one of the first stages to be seen (sorry if i seem like someone who’s hating you because you’re not “up to data” there seem to be a lot of people like that)

  • Mania

    Looks like someone is going around with 4 different accounts disliking everything. I dont get why it does nothing

    • YEPPER (the waffle guy)

      I KNOW, I HOPE THE MODS CAN RESOLVE IT! :D

  • http://zeldadungeon.net/ The pirate Tetra

    Beautiful graphics!

  • Dawson Clark

    i wish i had a 3DS or Wii U im missing all the new Zelda games AND the new super smash bros. that apparantly come out without me ever noticing. sucks.

  • Dawson Clark

    its awesome that they added skyloft though.
